Seventy-eight-year-old Jackson Barnett died in his sleep from heart disease on May 29, 1934. On June 7, 1934, the “sachem of Wilshire Boulevard”, as a Los Angeles paper referred to him, was laid to rest at Hollywood Memorial Cemetery alongside Tyrone Power, Rudolf Valentino, and other Hollywood celebrities. The annulment of the Barnett marriage and Jackson Barnett's death in 1934 immediately severed Anna's access to funds from his estate. Despite bleak odds for her inheritance, Anna nonetheless fought for her widow's rights.
